Psychedelia: 1961 Psilocybin Trip Report from the Timothy Leary Library archives. Written on the back of a Jasper Johns poster (Leo Castelli, gallery), dated July 15, 1961, is a trip report talking about "playing the game of life better" (paraphrased). Sections are redacted with gold paint. There is a coffee stain along the margins. Upon asking Ralph Metzner, he feels this was a report from their Harvard group, perhaps by Johns himself?
